NATURE’S PIC OF THE WEEK! – Looks like a Pineapple?

G’day everyone,

Here is ‘Nature’s Pic of the Week’!

I bought this Coryphantha spp a few weeks ago when I was visiting one of my favourite succulent and cacti nurseries. The flower is a beautiful creamy yellow with bright red filaments and yellow anthers. Every time I have shown this cactus to a friend or work colleague they all make the same comment; they all have said how it reminds them of a pineapple. I must say I do agree. When there is a flower blooming on this Coryphantha it does show a little resemblance to a pineapple.
